CACHE COUNTY, Utah (AP) -- A fire in Cache County that killed a 12-year-old girl appeared to have been an accident.

Yesterday, fire investigators examined the scene of the trailer home fire that killed Arista Hamiliton.

They say the blaze appeared to have been an accident.

Firefighters found the girl inside the burning trailer and dragged her out. She was taken to Logan Regional Hospital, where she later was pronounced dead.

On the same day, an apartment caught on fire in Logan. The blaze killed 26-year-old Christina Lee Ward and her children, four-year-old Dalton Ray James Ward and two-year-old MacKenzie Brooke Ward.

Fire officials say faulting wiring in the kitchen is to blame for that blaze.
